I was asked recently by Bakery Bits to review a new product called La Cloche .. a bakery dome. I love making my own bread.. especially sourdough and I worked in a bakery in the south west of France .. gosh .. erherm years ago, so the claims of how it could transform your bread really caught my eye. I was somewhat sceptical about what I'd read when I was at a sourdough baking class with Dan Lepard at Little Portland Street I asked him what was so fabulous about it ...
Of course Dan was right. I will never go back .. now I have my dome. There have been several things I have noticed about my bread since I have started using it. The bell traps the steam which maintains an even baking temperature which mean the my bread had a superb crust and more importantly stayed fresh for an extra 24 hours.
Based on ancient Greek and Roman baking traditions, the La Cloche is made from Superstone®, which is a natural stoneware, fired at over 1000°C. It is oven and freezer proof and is easy to clean, requiring only to be soaked in warm water so that any baked on food may be scraped off.
So whilst I am not prepared to part with mine(!) the good people at Bakery bits kindly offered me one to give away to one of my readers so to win a dome simply tell me what kind of bread you would like to bake.
